"Cas is a great host AND a great cook. We enjoyed our stay at the boot. We will repeat it, next time a bit longer since I did not even have the time to enjoy the cosy corner on the deck!"

A very nice alternative to a Hotel. An unforgettable experience. The boat is perfectly restored and comfortable. The rooms clean and a nice full size bathroom.The owner Cas is very friendly. He was discrete, yet always available. I suggest the dinner on the deck which made the stay unique. From there we took the bus or taxi and toured the city, but were always happy to return to our B&B, which became an important piece of this vacation. It was not only a place to sleep. but a place to return to and feel relaxed an comfortable.

Two couples, each with a room, one starboard, one port, and comfortable beds. We ate very well on the boat - tapas of various tastes, OUTSTANDING paella (prepared by out host, Cas) and the self-help refreshments were not your typical hotel prices. A bit of a walk to the nearest underground station, but not inhibiting. Wonderful experience and would try it again when in Barcelona!

My now fiancé and I had the most amazing time aboard the St. Katharine!!! The sunsets are fabulous, the Kava is cold and Cas makes a brilliant paella! We got engaged on a particularly beautiful evening watching the sun go down and the boats coming back into the marina. Just spectacular! We loved it and hope to come back - maybe for our honeymoon! Just so you know, as guests you're in walking distance of some great attractions and restaurants, including a beautiful beach and café next to the marina. Kas catered to my dietary concerns and the food was incredible - spend a night on board and have him cook dinner! Seriously! Last but not least, the hospitality and great conversations are worth the trip alone! Can't thank you enough for such a fabulous stay!

We enjoy our boat and the life around the Mediterranean Sea, so giving our guests a wonderful stay on board of our beautiful BnB and making/serving delicious meals (from the BBQ) on the front deck is for us like a hobby. Next to that if guests love watersport like us, we can arrange jetskiing, waterskiing, diving etc on or near the marina.
